Equity Team


Bethany Community School (BCS) is committed to ensuring that every student who walks through our doors has an equitable educational experience. Part of that work is to develop an Equity Team that is comprised of BCS staff, administrators, community members, and parents. The team meets twice a month to participate in professional development and to use an equity lens to review Bethany policies and procedures as well as the impact on students and families. Recommendations are made to administration to inform decision making.
